A few days ago I went on a short trip to Hamburg to participate in a (food) blogger event. As a small welcome gift the company that invited me gave me the coolest city map I’ve ever seen: Crumpled City.
Even though I’m a Bachelor of Geography and thus able to read maps, I am not exactly good at folding them. With Crumpled City, struggling to fold the map is not necessary anymore: As the name already indicates, you may simply crumple the map any way you like and store it in your pocket, backpack or (if you like things tidy and in order) in the little pouch it comes with.
Let me tell you: This map is perfect. Not only is it waterproof and sturdy, it also includes a list of “SoulSights” – special places that the creator of Crumpled Maps fell in love with. Of course there is not just a Crumpled City map for Hamburg – maps are available for plenty of urban locations around the globe*.
